    Ok I'm a little behind on Tikka values and I'm looking for some information. I sold my Tikka T3 Varmint in .308 a few years back but now have the chance to buy it back. The barrel and action had been Cerakoted and the rifle wears a Vortex Vipers PST 4-16x50 in Leupold STD mounts on a EGW HD rail. Asking price is $1300 for the package but I'm unsure if this is comparable to going rates at the moment. When I had the rifle it easily out-shot my DTA and I'd love to have it back to be honest but I don't want to overpay.

    YoDave is a no brainer, so easy to install, cheap, and makes a great trigger greater! Highly recommend.. that said, if you don't want a lighter pull weight you won't notice a difference.

    I'm just curious how long it took to receive a yo Dave spring. Mine was expected to ship on 2-6 and haven't received it yet so just wondering if I should start to check into it. Thanks

    For those of you that have had your barreled action cerakoted, did it mess with the smoothness of the action? Thinking of getting mine done to match the stock when it comes in, but don't want to mess up a good thing as far as the action is concerned

    New Stock McMillan Compact, its the same profile as the Edge, but has standard fill. It still under 32 oz and weighs 1 oz less than the factory stock. This one is in Sonoran Camo, feels great in the hands. Rifle is just a smidge over 7 lbs,.

    Tikka performence has cdi and their own dbm. Jason there at tikka performence is making me a dbm ctr footprint that is more the design of a surgeon. i was wanting one that had a skirt around the mag to stop binding when shooting off barricades. i wish it was oem footprint but a little inletting and she will fit. but it will take aics mags.

    Just put my first T3 (223 varmint) into a KRG X-Ray yesterday. Ergos are OK, but the whole rig is a little light in the butt for my taste. Thinking ahead on the potential release of an AICS AX chassis --- are there any definitive conclusions available yet regarding that chassis and mag compatibility for a 223?

    ​​​​​​​This is one of my beauties, Tikka T3 X on McMillan A5-3 with a PVA prefit nut barrel 6.5 CM 24", Mad Scientist muzzle brake, EGW 20 MOA and a Vortex Razor AMG.



    ​​​​​​​

    How did the prefit barrel work out? Did you pull the factory barrel and install it yourself? I'm thinking about doing something similar with mine.

    Atlasworx out of Australia makes one that fits into the CDI Inlet. It is a fair bit less expensive than CDI. There is also one called Tier 1 out of Europe which can be purchased through a few International vendors.

    I have the standard replacement metal on my hunting gun. It is good except the magazine release position is frustratingly placed. I think I'm going to replace it with their full DBM. How hard would it be to inlet a stock yourself for it?

    I haven't to shoot her, just came in yesterday. Im planning to do it this weekend. Josh at PVA rebarrell it , taking out Tikkas's factory barrels sometimes is a PITA but the best thing is that now will be easy to swap barrels because of the nut, just like Savages.

    I ordered one today, and they said it should go air mail tomorrow and be in my mailbox in 1-2 weeks
